MLB Interviewing Players As Part Of Drug Probe
NEW YORK (KDKA/AP) – Baseball’s union says management is interviewing players linked to a Miami anti-aging clinic that allegedly sold performance-enhancing drugs and has become the focus of an Major League Baseball investigation.
Clinic founder Anthony Bosch has agreed to talk with MLB, according to numerous reports, and union head Michael Weiner says the commissioner’s office has assured the union that “no decisions regarding discipline have been made or will be made until those interviews are completed.”
“It would be unfortunate if anyone prejudged those investigations,” Weiner said in a statement Wednesday.
Alex Rodriguez, Ryan Braun, Nelson Cruz and Melky Cabrera are among the players whose names have been tied to the now-closed clinic, called Biogenesis of America.
Colin Dunlap of 93-7 The Fan talked Wednesday morning about the ESPN report about 20 Major League Baseball players could be suspended in the next few weeks.
Colin hammered Braun because he is irked that Braun tarnished an average guy’s reputation after he tested positive after the 2011 season. Braun won an appeal of a 50-game suspension on a technicality.
If Braun is guilty now and was guilty in 2011, then he dragged a guy’s reputation through the mud to just to save himself.
